China’s strange endorsement of ‘net zero’

Xi knows that there is no accountability for anything he says. Not for him anyhow. He also knows that whatever empty gesture he makes will be taken by Western leaders as a win and as an excuse to strangle their own economies even more while he knows full well he will never ever deliver on these words. China has proven many times that it has no intention to abide by any rules. Not those of the international community, and not even those it claims to have adopted for itself. And that’s how we should deal with the chairman’s words.
